Critics Review

The critic seems to be quite happy with the film. Shubhra Gupta of Indian Express said “Done well; Happy Bhag Jayegi could have been a rollicking comedy. But despite its occasional throwaway lines, and nice touches, it never comes together. The pleasures of the film dwindle, and we are left to fend for ourselves, looking for something that will make us laugh, even if it is weak laughter. There is some of it, but it is far too intermittent.”

Saibal Chatterjee of NDTV said “Happy Bhag Jayegi isn’t the kind of film that will have audiences rolling in the aisles. But it might occasionally induce faint smiles on some faces. All through the film, the dialogue writer unsurprisingly pokes fun at Pakistan, but the jibes are never overly spiteful. Happy Bhag Jayegi whips up a steady rhythm in the first half only to lose its way a bit in the second.”
